Hey, Writer—A Lifetime of Tips, Prompts and Ideas to Help you Write your Best Work Yet—is full of thought-provoking, insightful, encouraging chapters discussing the magic of the creative process,  from your inherent right to create, to structure, to making your words dance, to making time when there's no time, getting the draft done, working with feedback and collaboration, getting over blocks and fears and enjoying the whole damn process. It can be beautiful.
